Artillery cuts down Scottish

Royal Artillery repaid the faith of connections with a battling display to win the Rose Of Lancaster Stakes at .

Royal Artillery ridden by Colm O'Donoghue (dark blue) wins the Betfred Rose of Lancaster Stakes from Scottish (obscured) with Arab Spring (left) staying on for third.

The one-time Classic hope made up for lost time when getting the better of Scottish in this Group Two contest over a mile and a quarter.

Scottish, who had made all to win at last month, set off in front but was closely followed by Royal Artillery while Gabrial and Foundation were slowly away.

The race only really concerned the front two and they fought out the finish, coming close together at one point before the -trained Royal Artillery (10/1) got the verdict by a length and a quarter.
